Losing Our Identity

2 Corinthians 10:12 We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise. One of the hardest things to do when you are unhappy, bored or disouraged is to not compare your life with someone else's. Some have called it a comparison trap. Oftentimes when we are idle or restless in our own lives, we seem to notice what is going on and into the lives of others. When this happens we lose our own identity. It's not wise to compare yourself to another person or your life to their life.  Don't fall into the trap of comparing yourself to others. You are exactly the way you are supposed to be. Don't let the weakness in you affect the greatness in you. You have been given all that you need to be the success that God desires for you. Settle down and settle in to that best version of you that we all want to see. You are amazing!

Follow the Evidence


Hebrews 11:1-2 The fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It's our handle on what we can't see. The act of faith is what distinguished our ancestors, 
set them above the crowd.

One translation calls faith the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things unseen. This is what faith is…evidence of what you cannot see…it’s the substance of all of the things you are believing for. Chapter 11 is filled with men who had learned how to use FAITH…how to activate that substance and present that evidence. "Evidence" refers to the clues left at the scene of the crime that lead you to the one who committed the crime. Faith is what God leaves out there for you and I that if we follow it, will lead us back to Him. Always follow the evidence!
This TRUST in God is what pleases Him. It IS the foundation that we should use to build the life that He intended for us to live. How do you know if you are using FAITH? You will be involved in something that is absolutely impossible without the help of the Lord. Twelve years ago I felt that He was leading me to be more intimately involved in the lives of people...to become a pastor. It was March of 2002 when The Landing Community Church was born. My journal notes document  what I was feeling in my heart and spirit, and I saw a picture in my mind and asked a friend to put it on paper. The bible says to write down the vision so others can read it! 
How do I know I am using FAITH today? Because this image is what the Lord has called me to move towards and it simply cannot happen unless He brings it to pass. I am trusting Him to lead me to people with the land and the experience to build a place where people can truly see God turn their dreams2destiny! I'm following the evidence. Using this faith daily is what makes my life worth living! What are you using your FAITH for today?
